My Original Block
This little quilt is the result of whacking my 9-patches. There are 9 blocks in this little quilt. Although it's difficult to design an original quilt block these days. I think it MAY be an original! Since I designed this block, I've seen more ideas in print, based on making a large block and then recutting it.
The second quilt is also the same pattern. I showed it at Guild Meeting and so many people asked about it, I gave a class, which produced an abundance of MORE ideas. As a sample, I brought in some of my 'mistakes' and some of the gals ran off with that idea and made even better blocks!
With the second quilt, the first two rows are set correctly. The last two rows have several of the blocks set in the wrong order. I did not even SEE that now-glaring error until AFTER the class, AFTER I had class-flyers priinted up, and AFTER it had hung in my living room for months.
The back is simply using up, what else, scraps, in a large log cabin design. I like it!
